The near east was a rich developmental area in art forms and ideas during the 12th to 19th centuries and many of the motifs of the area were used in ceramics in the UK and Europe. Many of the decorative techniques that shaped tile manufacture were first developed in the near east so it was logical that their designs should also be used.
